cheapest way to Marrakesh from La Linea or Gibralter

My hustband , myself and three friends would like a two day break in Marrakesh, we have found a hotel we like, but do not know the best way to get from Marbella to our preferred destination, would sailing be an option, if so who do we contact. Flying is out of our budget.

Thanks anyone out there

You can sail from either Tarifa or Algercias every day, there are fast sailings, do be aware that from Tarifa they normally take close to 1 hour and not the 35minutes that is normally advertised. You can also normally sail from Gibraltar on a Friday evening, but you do need to contact Turner Brothers at Gibraltar on the Friday to verify if the sailing is likely to run. Prices are more or less the same whichever route you sail from.

Are you aware that it is quite a distance from Tangiers to Marrakesh? You are virtually talking about a full day from Spain to reach Marrakesh and the same coming back. If you cannot afford to fly, you may find it is better to wait until you have a little bit more time to embark on such a journey, it would hardly seem worth the time and effort.

Two days? Forget it. AFTER arriving to Tangier, you are looking at a 10 hr+ train ride to Marrakesh. Maybe it's doable, but the question you have to ask yourself is, is it really worth it?

Thanks for your help, it is much appreciated. Guess we will go to Seville instead.
